Brady’s Bucs to Play Host to 3.5-Point Favorite Chiefs in Super Bowl LV

The Kansas City Chiefs were installed as 3.5-point favorites to win Super Bowl LV shortly after beating the Buffalo Bills 38-24 in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.

DraftKings and PointsBet were among the sportsbooks to set the early line at Kansas City -3.5 points despite the fact the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the first team in the 55-year history of the Super Bowl to play in their home stadium.

The Buccaneers upset the Green Bay Packers 31-26 earlier in the day in the NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field. Tampa Bay has won three consecutive road games in the playoffs to reach the Super Bowl.

DraftKings is offering Chiefs with a -165 moneyline and the Bucs at +135. Kansas City’s early moneyline at PointsBet was -180 with Tampa Bay at +150.

PointsBet has set the early Over/Under at 57.0 points while DraftKings was a tick higher at 57.5 points.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has the shortest odds to win game MVP honors at +110 by DraftKings, followed by counterpart Tom Brady at +250.

Kansas City wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce have the third-shortest MVP odds at +900 apiece.
